Some began life as Super Bowl spots. Others started as YouTube ad buys. Whether through virality or by paying their way there, they all became what ADWEEK calls the Top 10 Most Watched Ads on YouTube in 2017.
Then they met Rick & Rick.
Watch the spots (#1 is below) and then listen to what Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten have to say about each and every one of them. Let us know if you agree, disagree or have your own take—we'd love to hear from you.
The Ricks revisit "Stranger Things" Season Two episodes 3 through 5—and discuss a Duffer Brothers comment about the possibility that Hopper is a character from the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi actioner "Predator."
'Stranger Things 2'—Eps 3-5; and is Hopper a character from 'Predator'?
Why create a blockbuster new show and then hide it away where nobody will ever watch it?
Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten assess the first episode of "Star Trek: Discovery," the first new show developed for CBS All Access, a kind of Netflix dedicated exclusively to CBS properties.
It must have seemed like a great idea at the time—create a show with a built in, hardcore fan base to draw new viewers to this new app. But is it enough to pull in the Ricktators, both lifelong Trek fans?

Yet the Ricks have yet to watch another episode.
See what they have to say about the show and the legacy of Trek. Then let us know your own thoughts about "Star Trek: Discovery" and CBS All access.
Winding down their conversation about the marketing for "It," Rick & Rick pivot to a show that's clearly influenced by Stephen King and 1980's horror movies: "Stranger Things," which returns to Netflix for its second season on October 27. Are you ready to return to the Upside Down?
